will the money come from leading a columnist say care of finances aren't artists and here's why on the surface things may seem rosy after the international monetary fund granted kiev a seventeen billion dollar loan but it came with conditions. most importantly the national debt to g.d.p. ratio should be no higher than sixty percent is now predicted to reach eighty seven percent in just four years economic shrinkage in july six and a half percent last year it was only one point three percent political political economist jeffrey summers explains why he believes it's a catastrophe. we have the ever shrinking g.d.p. we have the loss of crimea course the lost production in the donbass region and the cost of the civil war itself so it's really quite a catastrophe and i would say that the i.m.f. is regarding the ability of ukraine to pay bondholders or itself. not only is the country's g.d.p. falling but its energy bill was increasing and this represents not only
a worsening of its balance of payments position but also makes ukrainian industry you know what little there is left function and even less competitive even higher energy costs moreover we have the situation or it has to pay for expensive gas with a declining currency is. the conflict has wrecked the heartland of ukraine's economy they don't yet know where the country's main plants and factories are based many of them have either been badly damaged or closed because it's too dangerous to work in a war zone much of the regional infrastructure has also been destroyed experts in global and financial markets patrick young says no one would want to invest in ukraine's economy right now for the situation in ukraine is that obviously it's incredibly difficult when you've had some sort of an insurrection on the streets a revolution lots of all people because that impacts on the economy and therefore it's incredibly difficult to get your statistics absolutely precise in such
a time it's really a tragedy for the people of ukraine and what we see at the moment is in a colony that is on the verge of a death spiral we've all the asli see all of the sorts of terrible warfare that are happening within the borders of the country that's a tragedy because actually it's the eastern corner of the country around don yes we're in fact the industry is that really adds to the overall g.d.p. what's the news we hear out of ukraine all the time fighting warfare terrorism problems who's going to invest in the back of the up nobody who's going to invest in a call to me where you don't have a clear rule of law where you cannot appreciably believe that your assets will not be in some way squandered taken away through bribery or indeed all right still of nobody. well argentina is the latest country to participate in the global movement in support of russian photojournalist understanding he went missing in eastern ukraine earlier this month various rights groups and activists have
joined an online appeal to kiev to do everything possible to fight him. islamic state militants that are waging war in iraq and syria have managed to carry out a successful global recruitment campaign as according to the latest report from a syrian human rights watchdog now last month more than six thousand men join the jihadists some of them from western nations and it's not just adults the extremists don't mind having the young fight for them also like this thirteen year old belgian boy earlier this year he traveled to syria with his older brother to fight alongside the radicals well canada has also become one of the recruitment centers for the islamic state militants as according to a local imaam it claims the islamists are infiltrating universities and mosques across the country is what he told me. you have the isis. you know recruitment universe you are has been very successful and they have very successful
you can even europeans americans and i say it's going to be a. computer. game has been fighting to get their number you know hundreds and thousands of people from best in rural who are writing i'll garrido was created in of gravity. and you can see you know all work great of destruction and atrocities carried out around war similarly i see it is worse than a card now and they are not going to stay just in sudan there are. everybody is going to work you can. hear it and there are not going to stay in to get it out believe me. the french port town of color is in the midst of a frontier crisis hundreds of refugees from east africa amassing that in a bid to cross into the u.k. authorities now on the british check point move back across the channel but the initiative is far from being welcomed in the u.k.
itself ati's pauli boyko explains. the french forces galle this has become a familiar sight destitute migrants the majority from east africa and the middle east has made the town that temporary home these makeshift tents on industrial wasteland have been nicknamed the jungle this condition i had never seen in my life you see i come from the war to police for example in there for their life is better than this i never had to pick one day i would find the situation in europe leg just the majority of the people we speak to tell us their aim is to make the journey across the english channel it's been eight hundred straight to get to the u.k. illegally each year we stayed away in lorries and we're doing in this side to know what to king how are you going to get out of. the tribally big tragedy.
so. go do decide please knowing to try dr knowing your estimates put the number of migrants here in cali one and a half thousand on these men women and children have. been queuing up for the past two hours to get some food provided for them by a volunteer organization and for many of them this is the only meal they're going to get to eat all day they're desperate to go to england you know they really that's what they want they don't want to stay here it's not a very nice place to stay and even if they ask for asylum many stay on the street for weeks or months before the bin have logic so if they're not encouraged to ask for stereo at all cali's mare says the town is so the scene just by refugees that locals fear for their safety and investors are pulling out of the area so
frustrated as natasha bouchard that she said she's willing to buy ferry tickets to send all the migrants over to britain she's even called for the u.k.'s border to be moved from its current location in the cali ferry terminal over to the port of dover. there is only one place in the world where countries borders are not physically located in their own country and those here in cali clearly doesn't work we are hostages of the decisions and the policies of the british government i'm demanding the border is moved back to its own country britain's borders should be in due were in the united kingdom it's not our job to control britain's borders kelly come to coop and they don't care how bad things are for us the u.k. government needs to start doing its job and not leaving it up to us to do here in france. just twenty miles across the channel here in the u.k. hasn't exactly got its arms wide open the british government is so concerned over
the migrants desperate attempts to make it to britain in deniz and makeshift vessels that a special fleet of border force boats has been assigned to patrol this coastline as for the suggestion to move the u.k.'s borders away from france the u.k. government has told us it's not in their plans. juxtapose control's hope play a vital part in to be hear from entering the u.k. locals in dover tell us that they've already had enough to service so many that we can tally this from just responsibility if they reach their shoulders and stand they should maintain a responsibility to go in trying to flip the switch to the so it's a problem that no one wants to have isn't it back in cali dinner time is while they're here these men and women's lives are taken up by simple questions like
where the next meal will come from or how they can get a shower while the authorities in france and britain continue to wash their hands of them. kelly and dave. well coming up on aussie international moments of calm after weeks of range you know it's time to focus on past its final respects to a teenager shot dead by police. last night the story of one man who made his dreams fly literally got a lot more coming up after the break. the world is laughing at america because every single day jamie diamond victim that is the american economy shows up in bloody great you know their debt and they're saying oh it wasn't me that did this it wasn't me that did this time i love j.b.

in the u.k. dog owners are said to be killing their pets with kindness with britain's canines now some of the fattest in the world as arctic tundra farm reports it's not just portly pets that might need to look at their diets. bruce the boxer is fact and he's trying to shed some pounds that lack of exercise import diet saw him balloon in size to almost twice his ideal weight. honey and goat's milk every morning and any dinner in the evening and obviously the treats of disputes and truth he's in good company though research shows over half of britain's dogs are in fact obese that's up fifteen percent in four years that makes them some of the fattest in the world a quick straw poll of our own helped explain why what treats to give them chicken fillets. cheery sticks and if you can get their arms will actually have a fish and chip put in
a ball through for the same results we don't get. julie jones is only too aware of the problem but says often dog owners aren't feeding their pet just one cup of tea is the human equivalent of eating a hamburger and being overweight consider fairly effect a dog's health is their pet and they love him dearly and i generally say you killing with love they get joint problems ok then they get heart problems and then there's difficulty of proving. but surgeries like julie's are offering help in fact three causes if you kate. it's now had that the city clinics chubby canines including bruce are being put on a diet of wholesome food and exercise well fifty five kilograms briefly used to be known as rochester's heavyweight boxer he's now down to forty nine kilograms but the thing is he's not the only saggy dog story in the u.k. there are currently four million dogs that are overweight. and animal experts don't
expect that figure to fall fast dogs are like their owners so the saying goes and with over sixty percent of britons now obese that is becoming the norm but individual owners you can do something about it early quickly but again i think just like with you going to be city now it's got to the point of being so common that it's going to take a long time to do with. the priest there's no looking back the smarties losing his girth as an impressive rate for him at least it's nothing tastes as good as slim felix andry farmer for r.t. london now preliminary results from the presidential election in the caucuses republican suggest the opposition candidate is leading the polls with more than half of the votes the country's new leader will have to deal with a legacy of years of rampant corruption has brought the country to the brink of reports for ati. sunday's election
a party i went through the route of protests but unlike those of the arab spring or some of the color revolutions the protests here did not snowball it's a vicious mind. against the all it's the president gave up his near absolute power paving the way to an early vote. out of mcchrystal says no people have finally realized that we need changes and not to be the nation's president now is not a privilege it's going to be hard ward as you've done to me and people have taken an active stance many showed up to cause their votes today we want the current situation in the country changed for people to have work and to feel that they're living in a free country that. the race quickly boiled down to two candidates on the one side there is the man who championed for change and led the protests on the other a loyal follower of the ousted president who served as minister of security. both promise a new age for piety and then to mass poverty pandemic corruption and government
excess. playing exactly on the citizens desire. the election was caught the turnout high by any standard and vote counting is now wrapping up officials told us they did all they could to allow both to have their say the elections unfolded in a calm atmosphere we did everything what we could that all that because people can company hold despite the very small budget almost one hundred international observers from twenty four countries were here joined by the locals we ran into them and various polling stations they went about their duties and that's what they thought of this poll. when you put them in the voting is gone really well the election is fair open and has been held in accordance with the nation's laws. jews they will mark six years since applies here received its first international independence recognition there was a belief that from that day on life would change for the better unfortunately that
